My First Ford
By Sam Mayle on
2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I find this to be a very pleasurable and comfortable auto. From its quick response when you step on the gas to the take charge of road cockpit which gives you a sense of being above the road instead of down on it. If something were to happen to my Five Hundred I would replace it tomorrow with the same car. This time Ford definitely did their homework.
I like the climate control and the six disc MP3 CD player. A great feature is the amount of cup holders,they are everywhere in this car and all the controls are at your fingertips.
Some things to think about for improvement are the noise of the engine at high revs, and the amount of outside noise you can hear when you are on the freeway. The suspension could be a little softer for a car at this level.
